Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Andredaselus (AUDIO: Insurgency) came from the Gallifreyan Great House known either as the House of Redlooms (PROSE: Lungbarrow) or the House of Deeptree. (AUDIO: Lies)

During the Vardan invasion Edit

Andred was a member of the Chancellery Guard. He organised the Time Lords opposed to the Doctor's presidency after he had helped the Vardans invade. He attempted to kill him as a traitor, but later aided him once his true intentions became apparent. Leela fell in love with Andred. She stayed on Gallifrey with him, accompanied by K9 Mark I. (TV: The Invasion of Time)

Later events Edit

Most accounts agreed that Andred was eventually made Castellan. (PROSE: Lungbarrow, AUDIO: Pandora)

At some point, he and Leela got married. (TV: Arc of Infinity) One account also stated that Leela then became pregnant by him, (PROSE: Lungbarrow) while several others contradicted this. (AUDIO: Gallifrey)

After spending many years with Leela, Andred became suspicious of certain activities by the Celestial Intervention Agency, and in particular suspected Coordinator Narvin of violent anti-Alien tendencies, in contradiction to President Romana's new policies. He made attempted overtures towards Narvin, claiming that his wife Leela had shown him the incompatibility of off-worlders living on Gallifrey. Narvin easily saw through Andred's ruse, and when Andred invited Narvin to meet him in the Citadel catacombs, he guessed that Andred might try to assassinate him. He sent his most trusted agent, Commander Torvald, in his place. In the confrontation, Andred and Torvald shot each other. Torvald was killed outright while Andred was forced to regenerate. Sensing an opportunity, Andred changed clothes with the unrecognisable corpse of Torvald and claimed his identity when found by guards. Believing Andred killed, Narvin covered up the incident and denied all knowledge of why Andred had suddenly disappeared, before eventually telling Leela that he had been killed by Torvald. Andred, meanwhile, continued to act as Narvin's loyal henchman in the hopes of uncovering any plot, sometimes working with Presidential bodyguard Leela. He finally revealed the truth to Leela, Narvin and Romana when they went back in time and confronted the real Torvald on one of his missions at a point before his death. (AUDIO: Weapon of Choice, Square One, The Inquiry, A Blind Eye)

Andred was arrested and imprisoned for his deception, and earned the hatred of Leela for letting her believe he was dead. In his cell, he was visited by Inquisitor Darkel who conspired with him. She allowed him to escape, and after Andred visited the Archivist to collect evidence, Darkel had the Archivist murdered and Narvin framed Andred for the crime, forcing Andred to go on the run for some time, hunted by Leela. While in hiding, Andred caught one of the off-world students, Gillestes, about to introduce a Free Time virus to the water supply of the citadel. He handed her over to Wynter, Andred's successor as Castellan following his original disappearance, in return for a pardon. After Wynter was attacked by the Pandora creature and mistakenly drank the quarantined Free Time virus, Lord Chancellor Braxiatel appointed Leela as his interim replacement. After Braxiatel's exile, Darkel returned Andred to the post of Castellan. Not long afterwards, Taylor, a student from Earth, tried to locate the Key of Rassilon. While trying to prevent him, Andred was stabbed through both hearts by Romana, acting under the influence of Pandora. Leela once again grieved for her husband, who was buried outside of the city walls, and began to wish that she could join him in death. (AUDIO: Lies, Spirit, Pandora, Insurgency)

Before his death, he taught Leela how to operate a staser. (AUDIO: Extermination)

Alternative timelines Edit

In an alternative timeline in which it was standard policy for the Time Lords to sell their temporal technology to the highest bidder and regenerations could be extracted and sold, Andred married Romana, who never travelled with the Doctor, and they had a son named Antonin. After his death, his widow resided in her ancestral home, the House of Heartshaven. (AUDIO: Reborn)

In another alternative timeline in which the Time Lords regularly altered history through the Temporal Intervention Agency, Andred served as the commander of the Chancellery Guard under Lady President Romana. (AUDIO: Disassembled)
